10 Strange And Pointless Inventions

Phone Fingers



Pointless inventions are something I often think about, my favorite being – Glow in the Dark Sunglasses, waterproof tea bags and an inflatable dartboard.

Although I wanted to look at the more serious inventions which companies think are actually a good idea.

Phone Fingers

iPhones and all touch screen phones are really annoying when you get fingerprint marks on them, well the Phone Fingers is a great way of solving this problem.

They come in four amazing colors, blue, pink, white and black!

They even come in different sizes, all ten fingers for only £9.

Butter Stick

Butter Pritt Stick

Haven’t you always been so tempted to put your Pritt-Stick onto a round of toast and eat it?

Well, me neither and I can’t really imagine it tasting that nice too.

Instead of glue though its butter inside this stick, so you can even carry it around with you!


Thumb Thing

A brilliant invention for reading books.

It’s a device that you clip over your thumb so you can read with just one hand, and you can do anything else you want with the other hand.

Cat Napkin Chain

Napkin Chain

If you want a very unstylish gadget, then this is the one for you!

Basically its two small grippers shaped like cats which hold the napkin ‘exactly where you need it’!

Boot & Glove Dryer

Boot & Glove Dryer

Ever wondered how to dry your gloves?

This funky looking gadget has a built-in fan to circulate air around your wet gloves and boots.

“Keep shoes, boots and gloves dry and odor-free with this must-have outdoor gadget”.

Laser-Guided Scissors

Laser Scissors

This cool scissor tool will help you cut in a very straight line, that’s assuming you are perfect at cutting in a line anyway.

The laser is attached to the scissors which means if your hands shake, so does the laser!

This really is cutting-edge technology!

Motorised Ice-Cream Cone

Even I’m not this lazy, this device is used by people who are too idle to simply twist their wrist.

All you have to do is put your ice-cream cone inside this battery operated turning cone and it will do all that hard work for you.

No need to clean it by hand either, as its fine in the dishwasher!



This is basically a pen that you don’t have to hold…

“Normal pens are not designed around the human hand and can cause discomfort in the fingers, develop sore muscles in the hand, and pinch nerves in the wrist.”

The PenAgain just makes life so much easier and it comes in loads of different colors… great.

Banana Guard

Banana Guard

“Are you fed up with bringing bananas to work or school only to find them bruised and squashed? Our unique, patented device allows for the safe transport and storage of individual bananas letting you enjoy perfect bananas anytime, anywhere.”

Yes, it annoys me so much that I want to go out and spend nearly £5 just so this doesn’t happen in future – sorry for my sarcasm.

Watch View Jacket

Watch View Jacket

This unstylish jacket comes with a sleeve gap so that you have access to your watch anytime, anywhere.

This way, you won’t have to pull back your sleeve to know what the time is; I wish I had one…

Well that’s the most pointless inventions explained I think, if you know of any, or have any other silly things, please let me know, I would love to hear about them!
